Thanks everyone for your input. Just to let you know I do have the Class A CDL with all the endorsement except HasMat. As far as the DOT number I found this link and I am not going to worry about getting one. I copied this and I put it in my glove box, so I can show it to anyone that thinks I need one. I also have a set of triangles, first aid kit, and fire extiguisher in the truck. I also called the federal DOT office in wisconsin and he said if the scale is open and in wi. anything over 4 ton has to pull in you had better. It is better to pull in and get waved through then get chased down and have the man MAD. Again thanks everyone for your input.
